We use organic ingredients and as local as we can get it (more on why here). We believe passionately about running a sustainable and eco-friendly business, and the ingredients we use are a key element, ensuring produce is excellent quality, produced in a sustainable way and ensuring the people who grow, manufacture or produce them are paid fairly and treated with respect.

The reason we have chosen to use organic produce is because it's important! Over recent years there has been more research into the area and organic farming and production practices have a positive impact across many areas. Here are a few examples (some text is taken straight from the reports):

  • Having a restricted use of antibiotics in organic systems could help minimise this risk of increased antibiotic resistance in bacteria 1
  • Animal products that are certified organic ensures that the animals are treated better as they have more access to outdoor space and less concentrated feeds. 1
  • As synthetic fertilizers and pesticides are prohibited in organic agriculture, people eating this have less dietary pesticide exposure, as well as the chronic and acute risks associated from such exposure. It also means the animals and insets eating the plants aren't poisoned by the pesticides. 1 It also means there is less pollution of groundwater. and in turn enhances the soil structure and water infiltration. 2
  • Organic agriculture reduces non-renewable energy use by decreasing agrochemical needs (these require high quantities of fossil fuel to be produced). Organic agriculture contributes to mitigating the greenhouse effect and global warming through its ability to sequester carbon in the soil. Many management practices used by organic agriculture (e.g. minimum tillage, returning crop residues to the soil, the use of cover crops and rotations, and the greater integration of nitrogen-fixing legumes), increase the return of carbon to the soil, raising productivity and favouring carbon storage. 2 4
  • Organic farmers are both custodians and users of biodiversity at all levels. At the gene level, traditional and adapted seeds and breeds are preferred for their greater resistance to diseases and their resilience to climatic stress. At the species level, diverse combinations of plants and animals optimise nutrient and energy cycling for agricultural production. At the ecosystem level, the maintenance of natural areas within and around organic fields and absence of chemical inputs create suitable habitats for wildlife. 2
  • Species that contribute to the food ecosystem, such as pollinators, soil organisms and natural enemies of pests, are under sever threat, and one of the main causes is pollution, overharvesting and overexploitation, which is mitigated by following organic agriculture practices. 3
  • By opting for organic products, the consumer through his/her purchasing power promotes a less polluting agricultural system. The hidden costs of agriculture to the environment in terms of natural resource degradation are reduced. 2

Well simply, cupcakes don't actually need liners. I know, how come we have been using them for decades? Yes they may make baking easier and cleaning up is a bit quicker, but that extra paper means extra felling of trees, production, packaging and transport and many liners have a silicone coating which means they can't be recycled. Join us in the #CupcakeLinerFree revolution.

As we want to eliminate disposable packaging, we have spent a lot of time and effort to get the perfect boxes and accessories for our treats. If they aren't returned or are damaged, they have to be replaced and it's a waste of resources, which is why we charge a late fee. We're hoping that you'll see the value in a more sustainably run business and will either bring your own containers (which we love!) or return the WHISK packaging and accessories you've borrowed.

It's best to eat them on the day, but they can last a few days at room temperature or up to 5 days in the fridge. Please make sure they are in a container or one of our WHISK boxes as the cakes will dry out and the biscuits will soften the longer they are left. If you have stored the cake or cupcakes in the fridge, its best to let it come to room temperature before serving. While you can freeze are products, they might not all turn out exactly the same once defrosted, so do bare that in mind.

Yes we do, most of our cakes can be made gluten-free and we can do many vegan cakes. Feel free to contact us to discuss any dietary requirements you may have and we will do our best to make your cake dreams come true.

Depending on how big a slice of cake you like or how large the cake is we recommend slicing it in either one of three ways:

  • Party slice – the traditional wedge of cake
  • Tall slice – slender rectangular slices (video / image)
  • Treat slice – a tall slice cut in half (remember our cakes are 4 layers)
